Timothée Chalamet Takes the Stage as Bob Dylan for ‘A Complete Unknown’

Timothée Chalamet is taking to the stage as Bob Dylan!

The actor, 28 — who will play the folk musician in the upcoming biopic A Complete Unknown — was pictured on the set of the film with his costar Monica Barbaro at Echo Lake Park, New Jersey on April 15.

Chalamet will star as a 19-year-old Dylan, 82, who rises to fame on the folk-music scene and eventually scores a record deal with Columbia Records.

Barbaro, 33, who plays the role of Dylan’s girlfriend Joan Baez, was captured playing the guitar alongside Chalamet who sang into a microphone while a harmonica appeared to be attached to his shirt.

The pair were dressed in character as they played for a crowd on the set, with Chalamet wearing a brown jacket over a blue shirt and blue jeans outfit. Meanwhile, Barbaro sported a blue and purple patterned dress while her darks locks were styled into a side parting.

Meanwhile, Chalamet was also spotted on set with his co-star Elle Fanning on Tuesday, April 9.

The pair were seen laughing outside in Paterson, New Jersey as they stood in front of multiple flower pots.

While Chalamet sported a brown jacket over a blue checkered shirt, Fanning — who plays the role of Dylan’s love interest Sylvie Russo — wore a burgundy jacket over a red and white striped turtleneck.

Rolling Stone previously reported that the James Mangold-directed movie’s other cast members include Nick Offerman as Alan Lomax and Boyd Holbrook as Johnny Cash.

Edward Norton also portrays folk singer Pete Seeger in the movie, after scheduling conflicts forced Benedict Cumberbatch to step away from the project.

Earlier this month, director Mangold, 60, confirmed that Chalamet will be singing as Dylan in the film.

The actor’s vocal coach Eric Vetro, who worked with him on Wonka, previously spoke to PEOPLE about his singing skills and shared how the star is “naturally musical.”

“It’s kind of astonishing because going from the Wonka character to Bob Dylan, it’s a completely different character, completely different voice, everything — and he does it,” Vetro said. “He could turn on a dime. He’s so talented that he is able to just switch into one role or the other really quickly.”

“It’s like what Renée Zellweger did with Judy Garland,” he added.
